What documents are confirmed?
Frequently foreign parties in trade might request a company to certify a document at a Chamber of Commerce. Usually this request is related to routines in foreign trade. The most usual documents certified at the Chamber are invoices, cargo and tariff lists and other certificates.
Through granting a certification for a document, the Chamber ensures that the matters appearing on the document are truthful. This might require, if needed, additional enquiries on the matters in the document.
Often documents need to be ‘officially proven to be correct’. In the case of a private document, the signature will be certified correct by a public notary at the Magistrate’s Office.
